Granted, we write about things that are happening in Bushwick all the time. But in my own experience trying to coax people out here on the weekends, unless you live nearby, it’s pretty easy to find excuses not to make the trek. Hence, it deserves the summer weekend guide treatment. This particular weekend, the neighborhood will play host to the Roberta’s-backed Bushwick Block Party. You may have heard about it:
Uh, yes. This is all well and good, and if you can handle crowds (and very long lines for free pizza), then by all means, dive in. But it’s by no means the only option. Over the span of not very much time at all, a lot of good stuff has cropped up throughout the neighborhood, and even for the most skeptical tourist (or non-North Brooklyn resident), it’s imminently worth spending a day or two poking around.
